Darrelle Revis got burned for an early touchdown by Bills receiver Marquise Goodwin on Thursday. The game was being broadcast on Twitter (and on SI.com!), and so naturally lots of people on Twitter were like “Whoa, Darrelle Revis is washed up.” Which is still debatable, but yes, he did not look especially agile during this football game.
Revis earned the nickname Revis island as one of the league’s top cover corners in past years. He also had trouble with Bengals star A.J. Green last week.
Everyone had a take. Including J.R. Smith.

Revis Island was consumed by rising sea levels and no longer exists. Sad.— SportsPickle (@sportspickle) September 16, 2016
who roasted Darrelle Revis more: Marquise Goodwin or Twitter?— Blinn and Juice (@NHLBlinn) September 16, 2016
Nope, no punch line here. The Bills led the Jets 7–6 after one quarter.
